Welsh[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Middle Welsh talu, talaf,[1] from Proto-Brythonic, from Proto-Celtic *tal-ī- (to pay), from Proto-Indo-European *teh₂-li-. Cognate with Cornish tyli, Latin tālis (such), Proto-Slavic *toliko (this much). An alternative theory considers the word (and its relatives, which are only found in Brythonic and not Goidelic) as a borrowing from Old Norse tal (number, count).[2]

Pronunciation[edit]

Verb[edit]

talu (first-person singular present talaf)

  1. to pay
    Wyt ti wedi talu am y bwyd eto?
    Have you paid for the food yet?
